Antwerp from the Window

posted November 5, 2012 by Holly Hayes part of trip: The Great European Road Trip

Greetings from Antwerp, on the Flemish (Dutch) side of Belgium, where I have stopped for three nights on my way to Amsterdam (and from there, home)! It has been very cold and rainy here, and I have my second cold of the trip - not surprising after all the public transportation and night photography in Paris - but I have otherwise had a nice time in Antwerp.

In particular, my hotel room feels positively palatial after three weeks in London and Paris! It also has a wonderful view, which I requested specially and was thrilled to get. AND it has a window that opens and a windowsill big enough for my tripod, so I've been able to do a lot of photography without even leaving the comfort of my room! A heck of a deal, in light of the above-mentioned weather and sickness. And I even got to soothe my weary muscles in the hotel jacuzzi, thanks to the swimsuit I bought way back in Bath.

Tonight I have been working on a big blog post on Paris, which I hope to complete in Amsterdam tomorrow night. In the meantime, here are a few snaps from my hotel window. (The very cool building across the square is Antwerp Central Station.)
